    Whisenhunt's "magic" with QBs continue. Maybe now we all see why Ben didn't get along with him!

    Warner probably bought him a couple extra years before he gets fired.

    He can be Cowher's OC when Cowher takes the Eagles job.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    I liked the call but not the result. The Ravens were all within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage so we had to do something to back them off. This play helped some.

    Yup...any kind of trickeration...this play, Drew Butler with a no-look flip-pass to Suisham at the goal line, Antonio Brown throwing a sure thing-TD that bounced off Baron Batch's hands...they typically always require H.C. approval. Tomlin doesn't need to be consulted for routine G-power run vs. WR-screen decisions on 2nd and 7.

    Could you imagine if the OC, DC, and ST coach had authority to make 1 of these calls a game? You'd almost certainly get 3 craptastic plays. On ST you'd get an onside kick/fake punt/fake FG, on O you get the flea flicker/triple reverse/HB pass, and on D I'm not sure what you get now that I think about it.

    Maybe on D you have to seek HC approval to send the house. Wonder if the play Ike got torched on vs Denver was something DL had to run by Tomlin?
